SAOAXACA is dedicated to increasing representation within the performing arts by providing excellent educational opportunities to underserved Mexican string instrumentalists and increase the study and promotion of Latin American and Hispanic chamber music compositions. We hope to create a bridge between musicians from the United States and Mexico, providing excellent pedagogical opportunities to young professionals by bringing classical music to underserved Mexican communities. Although Oaxaca is overflowing with astounding artistic talent and cultural richness, string education is scarce due to the lack of educational and economic opportunities. SAOAXACA is an invaluable experience for all of its participants due to its commitment toward the artistic growth of the dedicated, disciplined and passionate students who have long desired a high quality musical experience such as this. SAOAXACA is also dedicated to the study and promotion of chamber music works by Latin American and Hispanic composers. This festival was founded by the Amatista Quartet (Ann Arbor - MI) along with the Facultad de Bellas Artes - UABJO (Oaxaca) and the Fonoteca Juan León Mariscal - Centro Cultural San Pablo with the participation of internationally renowned guest artists. Festival participants had multiple performance opportunities and received private lessons as well as chamber music coachings and masterclasses by each member of the Amatista Quartet and guest artist.
